Hello Steve,


What a great study! Thanks for sharing with us.

Holothuroids = fitness beasts that lift sand and debris as a daily workout, run their marathons, have their identifying features, and return home after their sport ;-)

In a next life I like to return as a seacucumber...


Thanks again, super stuff!

Cheers - Yves
